Mort Künstler was their artist of choice because he is a preeminent Civil War artist, and because they wanted to select a scene to commemorate the 150th Anniversary of the start of the Civil War.
The scene selected for the Second Regimental Print depicts President Lincoln’s approval of General Orders No. 100, otherwise known as The Lieber Code.
The title of the print is: “General Orders No. 100, President Lincoln and the Lieber Code, April 1863.”
The painting will be presented to the Commanding General of the Judge Advocate General’s Legal Center and School during the WWCLE in October 2011.
